The buying and selling of the presidency

Considering the amounts of money raised to run for president nowadays, I say we eliminate the pretense that this has anything to do with a true democracy or one person – one vote and just call it what it is – the buying and selling of the American presidency. Then, instead of voting every four years, we can change the rules to read that no one…not a corporation, not a trust fund, not a coffee shop…gets to send a candidate more than one dollar. And you can only send it once so you have to choose a candidate. You can’t send a dollar to each candidate to try to hedge your bets. Come November, we count up the money and declare a winner. And then all the left-over money collected for any candidate goes to pay off the national debt. It’s a win…win…win.
